Real estate technology provider to aid clients and residents
impacted by devastating storm
SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To help the tens of thousands of people affected by Hurricane Harvey and
to assist its multifamily clients in the region, Yardi has leveraged its
RENTCafé property marketing and leasing platform to create a
housing registry website that will help displaced residents find
temporary and permanent homes.
The website (RENTCafe.com/HurricaneHarvey)
allows housing providers to post available units along with special
concessions and for displaced residents to search for housing. There is
no charge for housing providers to list their properties on the website
or for residents to use it. Yardi has also launched a hotline that
evacuees looking for housing can call for housing assistance. The
toll-free number is (844) 363-6317.
Additionally, Yardi is offering disaster response assistance for clients
on the RENTCafé platform, including nudge messaging, voice
messaging and call automation to help clients communicate with their
residents during the aftermath. Yardi representatives are reaching out
to clients in the affected area to explain and offer these and other
services at no charge.
“We have many valued clients in the affected area, and it is important
to us to assist those clients as well as their residents who may have
been displaced. Thousands of people have lost their housing due to this
devastating natural disaster, and we want to help in any way we can,”
said Anant Yardi, president and founder of Yardi.
Yardi has created a $1 million fund to support nonprofit organizations
in the rebuilding of the areas affected by the hurricane. In addition to
the $1 million pledge, Yardi is matching employee donations to the fund.
Yardi develops and supports industry-leading investment and property
management software for all types and sizes of real estate companies.
Established in 1984, Yardi is based in Santa Barbara, Calif., and serves
clients worldwide. For more information on Yardi, visit yardi.com.
